Question about Cell Phones
If the port has been broken, there are two ways to go.
1. Fix it yourself - If You havent repaired a mobile phone before or even opened, dont try it. The pins are VERY SMALL and require very steady hand and small tools.
2. Let experts fix it. Just go to repair center and say:"It just stopped charging, don't know whats wrong with it". Dont tell about the pulling and such. With good luck, they repair it for free. If they still ask you to pay, it is usually about 30- 45.

SOURCE: Busted Sidkick 3 Charger Port
Sorry to hear that. The Sidekick 3 is notorious for the charging port getting busted.
If you take it apart, you can see that it is soldered in 5 places to the motherboard. Maybe one of those solder joints came loose.
This link will show you how to take apart your sidekick.

Another option is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They go for about 30 dollars shipped on ebay. This will allow you to charge your battery external from the phone or if you have an extra battery , have one charging at all times.
Check the followinf link to see availability.

Check the mains power adapter with a multimeter. Plug the adapter into the wall mains socket and then measure the voltage on the adapter plug, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the adapter. If you get a low reading or zero reading the the charging adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

While in browser, open settings (bottom left button) and change display setting. The s3 has separate display settings for browser and general phone. Hope this helps.

it would be better to just buy an external charger for your phone and will only run around 20 dollars or less..this one was only listed for 15 off of an online auction site
